ADA Gallery Presents: “You Can’t Go Home Again”

ADA Gallery Presents: George Terry–BFA 2006 (Featuring George Ferrandi–BFA 1994 and Katrina Fimmel–BFA 1994): “You Can’t Go Home” and/ Sarah Bednarek–MFA 2005–”Symmetryyrtemmys”

Opening Feb. 6 from 7-9pm and runs through March 7th.

I am very excited to announce the exhibition of “You Can’t Go Home”. An interview project, with artists in their homes, in fog. The video installation speaks about home and where/how it exists for artists living in New York City.
Threads of subject matter oscillate between murky-grey areas of discussion in a similar manner to the way the word “home” itself transforms meaning.
“Home” can time travel in a single paragraph, often referring to a place that existed in the past when we look back to a point of origin, the present when we think of where we currently “hang our hat,” and to the future when we dream of the home we one day hope to inhabit. The word connotes geography, architecture, people, and an accumulation of experiences.
New York City seems to magnify a conflict of “home.” Home tends to shift, change and vanish at times anywhere one lives, but in New York it can happen with a harsh frequency. Artists in this city come from vastly different backgrounds and locations, and home can manifest in a vaporous, paradoxical way.

Artists interviewed include:
Kendel Bennett
Tudy Benson
Brent Blalock
Justin Cooper
Esteban Del Valle
Dan Estabrook
George Ferrandi
Katrina Fimmel

Gabriela Galvan
Gigi Gatewood
Rebecca Heller
JR Larson
Shaun Leonardo

1708 Gallery, “Assembler”


Join 1708 Gallery for “Assembler”, a night of conversation about our current exhibition, “Super / Natural”, on Monday, February 2, 2015. A facilitator will lead a group discussion with the audience starting with basic questions as a way to create a dialogue about the art on view. From here, participants work together to assemble the meaning of the art work shown in the gallery. Michael Jones McKean, artist and Associate Professor at VCU’s Dept. of Sculpture and Extended Media, will be facilitating the discussion.

“Super / Natural”, the exhibition we’ll be discussing, features work by Derek Coté, Adam Farcus, Christopher Mahonski, Liz Rodda, and Stephanie Roland. Themes of alchemy and magic, science fiction and new age spiritualism play across the works of these 5 artists. More information about “Super / Natural”, can be found at www.1708gallery.org.

“Assembler” is FREE and open to all ages. Doors open at 5:30 pm and the discussion begins at 6:00 pm. Please RSVP to Gallery Coordinator Janelle Proulx at jproulx@1708gallery.com.
